Debunking Common Myths About Sleep Habits

Debunking Common Myths About Sleep Habits

Sleep is as essential to our health as eating, drinking, and breathing. It allows our bodies to repair themselves and our brains to consolidate our memories and process information. Poor rest is linked to physical problems such as a weakened immune system and mental health problems such as anxiety and depression. Despite its importance, there are many misconceptions. Let’s debunk some of the most common myths so that you can start truly resting.

10 Sleep Myths Debunked:

  • Myth 1: Adults need less sleep as they get older. While lifestyle patterns change as we age, the amount of rest we need generally does not. Adults require 7-9 hours per night, regardless of their age. Older adults may wake up more frequently throughout the night and may end up getting less overall, but their need does not decrease.
  • Myth 2: If you can’t sleep, stay in bed and try harder. Contrary to popular belief, lying in bed awake can create an unhealthy link between your sleeping environment and wakefulness. Instead, if you find yourself unable to doze off for more than 15 minutes, get out of bed and do something relaxing until you feel tired.
  • Myth 3: Your brain and body can adapt to less sleep. There is a big difference between getting enough actual rest and getting by on sleep deprivation. While short-term effects may not feel severe, long-term deprivation can lead to chronic health problems. Your body’s need for shut-eye is biological and cannot be adapted to.
  • Myth 4: Snoring is harmless. Snoring can be harmless for most people, but for some, it is a sign of sleep apnea, a serious sleep disorder where breathing repeatedly stops and starts. If you snore loudly and feel tired even after a full night’s sleep, it’s best to consult a doctor.
  • Myth 5: More is always better. Sleeping more than the recommended hours can also be harmful. Oversleeping has been linked to a host of medical problems, including diabetes, heart disease, and increased risk of death.

  • Myth 6: Alcohol before can help. While alcohol might help you fall asleep faster, it also contributes to poor quality of rest later in the night. It can reduce your time spent in rapid eye movement (REM), which is often considered the most restorative phase of slumber.
  • Myth 7: Watching TV helps you relax before bed. The light emitted from screens can delay the release of melatonin, the hormone responsible for inducing sleep. It’s better to establish a relaxing bedtime routine that doesn’t involve electronics.
  • Myth 8: If you wake up in the middle of the night, it means you had a bad sleep. It’s perfectly normal to wake up during the night. In fact, historical evidence suggests that before the industrial revolution, it was common for people to have two slumber periods per night.
  • Myth 9: Hitting snooze gives you extra rest. Those extra minutes of snoozing don’t provide restful snooze time. In fact, it can make it harder to wake up and leave you feeling groggier.
  • Myth 10: You can ‘catch up’ on missed slumber. Unfortunately, it isn’t like a bank account. You can’t accumulate a debt and then “pay it off” on the weekends. Consistency is key - rest up!
